Welling United chairman Mark Goldberg has outlined the club’s stance over continuing the current season.

With financial support to allow National League clubs to play behind closed doors now set to be in the form of loans instead of grants, various clubs have expressed their concern over taking on debt in order to carry on the 2020/21 campaign.

As part of a statement, chairman Goldberg said of National League South Welling’s viewpoint on the matter:

“It is our belief that to not finish the season now would be inexcusable, having accepted the grants to date, and the government funds could have been provided to much greater causes in the event our season now becomes null and void.

“We only hope that other clubs in our own National League South and those that share our privileged status in the National League and the National League North see fit to share our sentiments.

“Whatever the outcome, we send our very best wishes to all our colleagues and supporters in football to be well and stay safe during this difficult period.”
